Digital agency Jellyfish has announced the appointment of B&Q marketer Steve Warrington as digital strategy director. The appointment follows that of Gawain Owen who joined the agency in the same role earlier this month from Diageo.

Warrington moves to Jellyfish after more than four years at B&Q. Most recently, as head of performance media and optimisation, he was responsible for all performance media channels at the home improvement and garden living retailer. A digital marketing and ecommerce expert, Warrington brings over 10 years of brand-side experience to his new post, with previous roles at Ryman, Dreams, Hackett and Wickes.

At Jellyfish, Warrington is tasked with providing strategic digital support and consultancy to clients as they continue to transform their business for the digital age. He brings extensive knowledge and experience of implementing the Google tech stack to his new role.

Rob Pierre, CEO of Jellyfish comments: “Enabling clients to tap into the knowledge and expertise of marketers with a proven track record of digital transformation within large brands is one of the main reasons we created this new and unique role. The ability to empathise with clients, having already faced similar digital challenges as a brand marketer himself, makes Steve an invaluable addition to the Jellyfish team.”

Steve Warrington adds: “Digital transformation continues to be one of the biggest challenges that businesses are having to face. Having been through the process, it’s great to have the opportunity to advise other brands with their own digital journey. Jellyfish’ continued expansion makes this an exciting time to join the agency.”
